This review is based on a digital copy I received from Author C.M. McCoy. It is an honest and voluntary review. The complimentary receipt of it in no way affected my review or rating. Captivating, dark and spectacular! This is an amazing story and once I started reading it I could not get enough! I just want to gush about this story but I do not want to spoil it for anyone. So, I will try to rein it in but I am bursting at the seams with excitement about this book. The beginning of the book started out like a typical young adult story. Two sisters who survived a life-altering trauma and now they only have each other and a gruff Uncle. There was good backstory development on the relationship between Holly and Hailey. You really feel the connection between them. The fantasy part of this book is so entertaining! I loved it. There is so much coolness going on at the college that I can't possibly contain it all in a short review. It was reminiscent of Hogwarts but it really has its own flavor. These are young adults attending college and it is written in that tone. I loved that you learn about the characters through the story not just some info dump at their introduction. I love/hate how hard things were on Hailey when she started college. I think it made me like her more to see her struggle but at the same time all the situations she endured were frustrating at times. There is quite the love triangle happening in this book. A looove triangle!! I typically loathe love triangles and they usually get a mega-eye roll from me but the way that the Author built up this triangle I was completely in. I know this may be a turn off to some of you but it did remind me of the love triangle in Twilight between Bella, Edward, and Jacob. In this story, there is Hailey, Asher and Fin. Asher a creature from the Aether, known as an Envoy, had developed feelings for Hailey which also happens to be a reason for his termination among his brethren as they consider feelings a disease. The way the relationship was built between Asher and Hailey.....oh my gosh I was so on team Asher. Which is so weird because normally I hate extremely unhealthy, jealous characters but I just loved Asher's character so much and being that he was new to these feelings he was developing it was like watching him grow and mature throughout this book. Fin, for the love. He is a womanizing punk and I don't care how old he is and how he is painted to be a victim of his situation, just move over Fin...Asher has got this! I hated that Hailey saw anything in this guy. Sheesh he is Mr. Popularity and she being the shy introvert wanted in. Sigh, then I think about his suffering and how he wanted the right things and I feel bad for him, but then there is Asher and suddenly I am back on team Asher. Ha ha ha, as you can see I am mixed on this just a bit but that is what makes it soooo good. Some examples of what type of characters to expect in this book: Giselle is a banshee who is unable to wail, Tomas is a hairstyling poltergeist, Mrs. Spitz the librarian who also happens to be a clairvoyant zombie, ferocious Yetis, carnivorous trees, and many other interesting spooky characters. Giselle is a great supporting character and as far as secondary characters go she is my favorite. Of course, I did not like her in the beginning because she acted like an absolute hag to Hailey but at least she was upfront with her feelings. Such a wonderful novel! There has to be another installment coming because the way this one was left had me all sorts of heart-broken and I am dying to have a conclusion. Well a conclusion that I like better, ha ha ha. Get this book, read this book! You will not be sorry! *Thank you to Author C.M. McCoy for this complimentary copy of Eerie*

Amazing page turner!
Don't start this unless you plan to sacrifice sleep, or a social life, or frankly anything that requires you to put it down. I waited until my newborn and toddler were in bed and stayed up way too late trying to absorb every amazing detail in the story. Those two sleepless nights were worth every single second! I've heard the book described as a cross between Twilight and Harry Potter. I'm not sure that does the story justice. While it pulls elements of paranormal, C.M. McCoy creates creatures and characters I've not seen before. It's new, refreshing and every bit the page turner you want in a novel series. I don't want to spoil anything, this is simply a MUST READ, even if the genre isn't normally your style. The second book is not yet out, but I cannot wait to get it in my hands and tear through every page. At least 3 times. With a pot of hot coffee ready.
Eerie is such a great ...
Eerie is such a great story and C.M. McCoy is a great writer. Just the synopsis alone had me rubbing my hands and wanting to get a hold of this book, and it didn't disappoint. C.M. has created a world I cant wait to read again and again.
